I feel like I'm losing my mind! I thought Flans and its vehicle packs were popular enough to dictate more documentation / help online.
This has to be a case of me just being confused. Here are some strong points to illustrate the problem.
I'm updating my old 1.7.10 world to 1.12.2 because most of the mods have been updated
One of my favorite mods, Flans Mod, has also been updated
Flans mod has a content pack called "Spinos Vehicles" which lists itself on various mod sharing sites as needing "minecraft-smp" pack as a requirement
Without this pack, all the textures from Spinos are missing, pink / black
There is a link on Flans website, as well as some links on other websites, which point to a non-working page here on MinecraftSMP (I believe it's minecraft-smp.de/request.php?133 or some number argument)
Again, this link doesn't work, and I can't find for the life of me the file he is talking about
Surely if he has updated his content pack to work with the new Flans, and 1.12.2, then this dependency file is out there somewhere?
Hmmm. It makes sense.
I couldn't imagine why something that apparently provides arbitrary parts would affect the textures on the cars in a separate pack.
It just seemed to me that, since he is saying there are 2 packs needed to use his - and he has updated his pack to work with the newest Flans and 1.12.2 - that some combination of those packs or files would make it work.
Why would he update it, see that the textures were broken, and then upload it? He wouldn't.....right?
Are you Fex the creator of FVATM?
Surely you would be able to find an answer if you tried this Spinos pack for me to see if it's just me doing something wrong :<
